Childlike Excitement!

If I don't receive one more thing this year
for Christmas I will be content and thrilled ~
this magazine came
today...
excitement filled me like a child at Christmas
i couldn't wait to open it and
see all the beauty inside~
{ Roberta also included this gorgeous fleur-de-lis ornament
that just sparkles and i love it }
it did not disappoint
i have been steaming around all day
cleaning and decorating
but...
i did take a peek~
breathtakingly beautiful!

{Roberta let me know that she still has a lot of these magazines
left so if you still want one click here to go to her site and
purchase one }
and then this package also arrived today...
from Wren Cottage on etsy.
isn't the wrapping alone so beautiful~ love all the special little touches~ even a pretty sticker on the foam wrap~ and here is what was inside i love it it just sparkles and shines i hung it on my antique mirror {photos to follow later}

these two things are all i wanted for Christmas and i adore them both

i am blessed indeed !

That is gorgeous! Always fun to receive something fun in the mail rather than bills and junk :-) Have a great day!

Oh my gosh Sandi... Check out my post I did earlier this afternoon. Same magazine and talking about the wrapping... What a toot. Are you sure we aren't related?

What gorgeous wrappings! How precious of her to add such beautiful details. I will go over to see about the magazine too.
Thank you for sharing your bounty,

I love it! What a lucky girl you are. And that magazine - I have heard so much about it - if you love it, I know I will!

I love the detail in the wrapping. You are truly blessed. What wonderful gifts -- something to decorate with and something to be inspired by. Thanks for stopping by my side of the world -- yes, the Sandtarts-Mexican wedding cookies-Russain teacakes :) -- are rolled in powdered sugar after they've cooled. I make them for all the holidays now as they are delicious, always turn out great and are always a big hit. Best wishes, :) Tammy

Hi Sandi.. That magazine looks gorgeous and so does your new glittery "Blessed" wall hanging. It is so perfect for you. It will definately make you smile each time you see it. Have a great week!!

Hi Sandi,
Oooh, how gorgeous both of your items are there. I haven't received my magazine yet, hoping it comes today as I'd love to read it this afternoon on the porch. Your blessed sign is very pretty, where are you going to hang it? I have a "maison" sign ordered from Wren's Nest that I've been wanting to move into the kitchen from upstairs and think I'll put that on my list for today. Have a beautiful day... fingers crossed my mag comes today ;)
